Ballhawks wins Best editing and Best Director at the Midwest Independent Film Festival's Best of the Midwest Awards.
Murray also narrated a Chicago Cubs documentary last year called “Ballhawks.” (The movie took a look at the people who stand outside Wrigley Field to catch homerun balls.)
For Blackhawks fan Christina, who was born blind, her goal was pretty simple. She wanted to experience a Blackhawks game at the United Center. Her wish was granted by the team, which also enlisted forward Patrick Sharp to help ensure Christina's surprise would be one she'd never forget. You might want to keep a few tissues handy for this one
""The flourish at the end brought a tear to my eye."
I think we all owe a thank-you to Christina and the Blackhawks for reminding us of the goodness and pure joy that come from sports.
"FRESH CATCH" See the new documentary Ballhawks, on the diehards who lie in wait for homers outside the Friendly Confines, this week at the Siskel.
For director Mike Diedrich, bringing his film Ballhawks, which concerns the men who chase balls hit outside Chicago's famed Wrigley Field, to the Baseball Hall of Fame was somewhat overwhelming.
The elder Murray has become Hollywood’s most sought-after white whale. He eschews agents and publicists, so most filmmakers must contact him via an 800 number that he may or may not check. Sofia Coppola spent months pursuing him for Lost in Translation."
Director Michael Diedrich does a magical job of exposing the community of the Ballhawks. Showing how passionate they are about what they do. Enlightening the viewer to the intriguing as well as the curious that exists on Waveland Avenue and in the community as a whole.
The Chicago Blackhawks have released a new motivational commercial and it is absolutely phenominal. Power of a Goal packs a lot of stuff into a minute and a half, and if it doesn't get you a little jacked up, then I don't know what will.
"Chicago Blackhawks show off babysitting skills in heartwarming video."
"Five minutes in, you'll wonder how they can possibly get an entire feature out of this. An hour in, you won't want it to end.," Indianapolis Business Journal
This video might be one of the best things the Blackhawks have ever done, and considering they've won a million Stanley Cups, that's saying alot. This video rivals Duncan Keith skating with Cammy in ways the Blackhawks have ruined you emotionally.
Few other pastimes inspire the same kind of fanaticism that baseball does, and this documentary focuses on a small and dedicated group of Cubs fans as they hope to catch fly balls outside of Wrigley Field
Cammy was born unable to walk or speak but she sure can smile and she flashed that smile up and down the rink with Duncan Keith.
